    Always fun listening to your OUaT takes, guys.

    and as usual, here are my extra points:

    – There were 3 times we’ve seen the Jolly Roger after season 4A. First, at season 4 episode 15 (the one ending with Ursula’s happy ending), when it was revealed that Elsa trapped the Jolly Roger in a bottle for the crimes committed by Black-Beard, and then Hook released it, along with Ariel who was trapped in it. Then, in season 5 episode 3, when Dark Emma meets up with hook on the ship. And finally, season 5 episode 10, when Dark Hook and Gold Rumpelstiltskin battle on the ship, ending with Hook escaping and Gold possessing the Excalibur.

    – I think Snow is somehow forgiving for that David-Cruella unintentional dance, since it’s some sort of a karma to her kiss with James.

    – Merlin is definitely dead. His heart was crushed, so yeah, he’s as good as dead. Not sure if he has any unfinished business, but most likely he does, and I won’t be surprised if he has 2. The Author role, and the Dark-One issue.

    – Definitely looking forward to seeing Zelena again, especially in her green form. I love the idea of her having a romance with Hades. They really do seem perfect for each other. I won’t be surprised if she’s actually his mythical loved-one, Persephone. Another theory that crossed my mind is that Hades is the reason she became as powerful as she is.


    • I hope Zelena’s green skin and Hades blue hair are both recessive genes, or those are going to be some unfortunate looking kids. 😉

      Thanks for the notes! Definitely agree Merlin is dead…I’m thinking he doesn’t have unfinished business, but the writers could really create some on the fly if they want him in Underbrooke for some reason.

      I don’t think the Snow/James thing is an apples to apples comparison to the David/Cruella thing. The former was an accident…the latter was a necessary plan. But because it was necessary, I’m sure she’s understanding. The unfortunate thing is that David is going to taste like gin and cigarettes for the foreseeable future. 😉
